Here's a tip endorsed by leading safety authoritiea: have your tires checked. Hidden tire damage can re- • suit in incon- venience, seri- . ous trouble, even loss of life.

COHON ACREAGE STATUS AS OF THIS DATE Collin County is a historical cotton growing county. Collin County planted 218,700 acres of cotton in 1928 and has 'since fallen to the low of 85,516 in 1955. The rate of declining acreage was fastest since 1951 when Collin County planted 147,000 acres; 1952 —124,000; 1953—115,962; 1954— 93,076; and 1955—85,516. Some cotton has been regained in 1956 and our acreage was held quite stable in 1957. Collin County should be very much concerned about the cotton acreage allotment. If the down ward trend of losing 12,000 to 15,000 acres of cotton allotment every year continued, the 1957 allotment could very well have <been 61,000 acres, 1958 allotment could be 49,000 acres or less. Can we fathom the drastic ef- fect this would nave on farmers and businesses of Collin County? Can the farmer realize that where he now has...
